Hey guys, thanks to you guys I've built a brand new cpu just the other night. Wasn't too shabby at all. Anyways, I want to get the 4830 saph gpu and had a non technical question about newegg. I'm just wondering what people's thoughts were on open box items from new egg. I can either get a brand new one for $99.95 or an "open box" for $72.95. Just want to know what you guys would do. I'm pretty strapped for money, but I don't want a headache from an open box product being defective either, lol. Just mainly interested in your experiences with open box from newegg if you've had any. My other question is if I'm going to spend $99.95 for the HD 4830, should I just spend $20 more for the saph 4850. Is there a noticeable difference between the two? Thanks!

I would try to lay down the extra cash for the 4850 or gts 250. But if you do go open box I do not think you will have a problem as the majority of people don't, it just means that is was used before.
